Quick Note: Use It or Lose It.

With less than two months, before I leave Peace Corps Armenia, it’s crunch time. I have spent most of today sorting skincare products. Some items, like my Morning Aura facial cream and Moroccan heat lip gloss, by Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder, are over two years old. Other items, like my Clarins Take Off Travel Skin Care Essentials bundle, purchased at some Duty Free, in 2018, is a year old this month. I now have forty-five days to use, donate, or toss most of my skincare.

So, which products did I love, during my Peace Corps service? My favorite items were ….

I can not live without Pixi Glow Tonic To-Go. I will definitely repurchase this one. You just wouldn’t believe how many extra uses I got from this little jar. I pushed my own cotton balls in there (from time to time) and almost doubled the 30 pre-soaked pads. Just saying …

I’ve already repurchased the Victoria Beckham Morning Aura and placed it in my luggage, ready for Peace Corps Ethiopia. It’s an expensive item, but … I’m not yet Bored with the Beckhams.

I will also repurchase the Gentle Foaming Cleanser with cottonseed and the Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, both from Clarins. I’ll be on the lookout for them, at Duty Free, on my way back to the USA.

It feels good to not have to worry about how much product I’m using. It’s going to be Spa Weekend, every weekend, until I’m gone. -GGT
